What a wild night that was in the NHL yesterday! All 9 games went over the total, most of them by several goals. You don’t see nights like that very often anymore.
We went 1-1 last night, winning on Bruins/Jets Over 5 but losing on the Blackhawks -130 at home.
The Blackhawks finally woke up in the 3rd period, outshooting the Stars 22-2 at one point, but couldn’t overcome an awful first period when they fell behind 4-0. We expected a better response from Chicago after being shut out at home the previous game, that’s for sure.
The Bruins and Jets combined for 5 goals in the first period alone, guaranteeing us no worse than a push. Boston went on to win 6-2.
There are 7 games in the NHL tonight, and we’ve got bets on 2 of them. We also leaned towards the Kings/Rangers Over 5 and considered taking the Hurricanes as home underdogs to Pittsburgh, but decided to pass on both.

They aren’t the rivals they used to be, but Detroit and Colorado always seem to play tight defensive games. The Under is 6-1 in their last 7 meetings over the past 3 years, and 5 of those games were decided by 1 goal.
Detroit has locked things down defensively since allowing 6 goals to Florida earlier this month, giving up just 2 goals in their last 3 games. We expect the Wings to set a similar defensive tone at home tonight in another low-scoring affair.

This line stuck out like a sore thumb. Florida’s 17-7-3 at home this year and 11-2 in its last 13 at home, yet the Panthers are close to a pick ’em price tonight against an underachieving Blues team.
It smells like a trap, but we’ve looked at this game up and down and can’t see why the Panthers aren’t bigger favourites. They’re well rested, having not played since a 7-4 rout of the Sabres Tuesday. The Blues aren’t exactly rolling, going 2-2-2 in their last 6. St. Louis has won 6 of the last 7 meetings in the series, but these are 2 very different teams now.
The bottom line is that Florida should be a bigger favourite here, and we can’t ignore the value.
